I have always been an op shopper, I love finding interesting things and saving a few pennies.
The kiddos and I are sporting almost entirely second hand wardrobes and loving it! We've found plenty of big brand tags, some hand made treasures and some vintage gems all on a pocket money budget.
Melbourne is blessed with LOADS of great op shops but here are my top three:
Love the price per piece system here, all kids clothes are $2 each! Free parking out front or a very short walk from the train station. Our best find here was a signed copy of Animalia.
Our local and our favourite. The prices can sometimes be a bit exxy for an op shop but this place is huge and super well organised so you are sure to find something. Fantastic book section and they have a loyalty card that gives you increasing discounts when you donate. Our best find here was just recently- a big bucket of vintage lego!
Salvos are the classic great oppy and Brunswick doesn't disappoint. I'm listing this one on my top 3 list but if you are in Brunswick you should really check out the other op shops on Sydney road too. Our best find here- Mini found a Minnie Onsie and Rav found one of his beloved That's Not My... Books.
